    Reading the warnings from the government about Jeremy Corbyn and the threat to our national security it got me thinking how dangerous things are for Switzerland right now. Their government is in the hands of some peace-lovers that has kept them outside NATO and refused to have a nuclear deterrent and given the wealth in Switzerland what is to stop countries like Russia/China holding them to nuclear blackmail and demanding they hand their cash over?

    We should spread the word urgently to many British citizens that are in Switzerland to warn them to come home quickly else they may be trapped over there when an attack happens. With neither any nuclear deterrent of their own nor the shield of a defensive alliance their enemies can just attack with impunity.

    Also warn people before they want to leave for Switzerland, I've already been hearing people saying that if Corbyn was to come in to power all the wealth creators would simply move to Switzerland but this could be a tragic mistake if they were to go in good faith and be subject to nuclear annihilation :afraid:

    Difference is that Switzerland isn't the EUSSR, has saner immigration policies and would never elect an Islamist lover like Corbyn.

    Immigration policies aren't a defence from nuclear attack. If the Swiss government can't protect the security of its own people then it's not fit to be a government.

    The thing about Switzerland is that it's made an effort to be small and innocuous enough that nobody wants to attack it. We are not small and innocuous, and with our 60M+ population and huge economy there's absolutely no prospect that we ever could be within the next century.

    Switzerland uses it's own terrain to make it virtually impossible for anybody to invade that country.

    Jeremy Corbyn is the most dangerous man of this generation.

    To get to the Swiss requires going through 3 nations that do have nukes (2 Nato nukes, 1 missiles).

    To get to the UK without a missile defense requires about 50 ships and 500 strikecraft. From there we'd have to depend on the US.

    Switzerland's defensive strategy was quite literally hide in the mountains and wait for NATO to sort things out in Europe. They are the country equivalent of go to the Winchester and wait for all this to blow over.

    Fact is countries like Switzerland are only safe and secure because of other nations willingness to run a globalist foreign policy. The most important contribution of the US to the world is the most overlooked of all, the commitment of the USN to freedom of the seas. Much like herd immunity with regards to vaccines, nations can run a pacifist foreign policy because other nations tacitly guarantee their independence.

    You're right, it's not. It has something much worse. it's signed treaties that subject it wholesale to whole chunks of EU law without having any prior input into its creation.

    I was under the impression that all Swiss males are military trained and keep their issued weapons at home. They'd probably put on a fair fight unless they got nuked... but that probably won't happen.

    Im not just talking about nuclear attacks though. Corbyn would let in thousands upon thousands of more muslims which would be a disaster for national security.
